Went away for the weekend to Stockton to see Sequoia and friends who were renewing their 45th wedding vows.
It was hot up there. Beautiful in Sequoia.
The ceremony was sweet and included all their children and their grandchildren and friends. Afterwards the kids jumped into the pool and the adults sought shade and talked about how quickly everyone had grown.
There are lots of foreclosures in Stockton. Their local newspaper is as thin as ours. People are struggling to make ends meet. Their city is facing financial crisis. Drastic cuts are being made in the city.
But for a moment, we all just focused on family and the weather.
